Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
My XP installation hangs when it gets to the copying of the files to the hard drive. The computer only allows a startup disk so I use windows 98 startup disk. This means I am trying to start installation of XP from DOS. When I type winnt the installation goes to copying files and then hangs. What is the special code I can use to get it to install by itself? (winnt /s /x)
Go to a computer that works and put in your hard drive. (whivh I don't recomend unless you are a technician) Boot and install through the slave drive ie the one you put in. If you need more detailed solutions you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Try to go to bios and load bios defaults, esc then save and exit. boot from the cdrom by, tapping on F12 at dell screen. at boot menu screen, choose cdrom, press enter, when you see the message, PRESS ANY KEY T5O BOOT TO CDROM, hit any immediately, that should allow you to install xp directly from the cdrom.
